HiI'm a 27 yr old single mom of a 2.5 yr old with a hypothalamic hamartoma. He is doing well but needs a lot of extra care and I'm having the most trouble with my diagnosis because I'm too tired to take care of him! He's the light of my life and I don't know what I'd do if my family wasn't taking responsability for him. I don't know how to explain it to everyone, but I constantly feel like I'm in a fog and could fall asleep sitting up. I was recently diagnosed with Anaplastic Astrocytoma Grade III and had an emergency partial resection and am scheduled to start radiation and temadar within a week and I just need some support on how to cope with the tiredness and ways to get through a day with an extra energetic toddler. The fog that I feel like I'm in, feels like depression. I just daze and have to push really hard to get out of the chair and do anything. Anyone with any suggestions?
